Revised Rules as of 4/23/06:
If you have any questions about the rules, feel free to PM an Admin or other staff member.
1. Posting pornography will result in an immediate banning, no questions asked.
2. Let the staff do their job, please. We understand that you're just trying to help, but we're well under control.
3. Horizontal scrollbars are annoying, please try to avoid them, unless posting a picture.
4. No double accounts, or they'll both be banned.
5. Keep the spam in the Asylum. What is and isn't spam will be up to the staff to decide.
6. No flaming, we have to get along, serious flaming will result in a suspension.
7. Respect the staff, as well as all other members. Show respect to earn respect.
8. Put topics in right fourms; makes our jobs slightly easier.
9. Don't beg to be a staff member. It's annoying and will probably lower your chances of getting the job anyway.
10. Do not bump old topics for the sake of bumping old topics. It's okay if you have something on-topic to contribute.
NOTE: Due to the nature of the word-games forum, bumping is acceptable there. Also acceptable in your own topics in the art forum, and in pinned threads.
11. Please keep your signature at a reasonable size, no one wants to scroll through a huge sig. Scroll down to the bottom of this post for the Sig Guide.
12. Don't evade the word filters, they're there for a reason.
13. Please don't double post without a good reason. If you are unsure about your reason, ask a staff member.
14. If a staff member edits your post, do NOT edit their edit. Doing so is an immediate warning.
15. Ignorance is no excuse. If you didn't read the rules, it's no one's fault but yours.
16. Please at least make an attempt to have decent spelling and grammar ktnx.
17. If you are under the age of 13, we have to ban you. It's nothing against you; it's illegal and we could get shut down otherwise. Feel free to come back when you're of age.Warning Rules:
1. When a member recieves a warn level of 50%, they will be suspended for at least 5 days.
2. Warn level may be reduced with admin approval.
3. If one attains a warn level of 100%, it is an automatic banning. Note:
Suspentions and bannings are not limited to these guidelines. Breaking a major rule can also result in an immediate suspention, temporarily or otherwise,
if the offense is bad enough.Staff Rules:
1. No editing of members posts without reason, and don't delete posts at all unless they contain pornagraphy. If done, this will result in a removal of your powers.
2. Don't abuse your powers in any way shape or form.Affiliation Rules
1. You must become an active member. This means you must get past the 'new member' rank and get the 'member' rank. We don't want people coming, advertising, and then never being heard from again.
2. You must be either the owner of the site, or you are an administrator on it.
3. All potential affiliates must be checked out by us in order to see if they meet our qualifications.
4. If the person who submitted the affiliation request becomes inactive or is banned, their site will be removed from the affiliates box.
5. If the site itself becomes inactive, it will be removed from the affiliates box.Sig Guidelines:
The width dosen't matter as long as it dosen't stretch the screen; it's the height you gotta watch.
